New Generation, AKA how to get old fans invested in new works · 8:39pm Sep 30th, 2021

Been a while, I know, but I want to talk about the "MLP A New Generation" movie. I saw it on Netflix, and I liked it.

I'm not a big fan of 3D animation, since 2D can have so much more variety and creativity in style and tone. Meanwhile, 3D tends to all just look like generic Pixar/Disney/Dreamworks sameness, but with this movie, I found myself looking past the animation style for a large majority of the runtime.

It was always there. · 11:08pm Apr 4th, 2015

The FIM season five premier highlights the destructive and manipulative nature of communism when actually put into practice. Everyone who watched those two episodes can see that. It's obvious. What isn't so obvious is that the show has been doing that for quite some time. Will you believe me now when I say that the King Sombra episodes were about a tyrannical dictatorship. Yes, I'm banging THAT old drum again.

And then I donated to A.L.S. research · 9:44pm Sep 23rd, 2014

Demon of Decay decided to tag me with the ALS donation challenge. It was supposed to be 'within twenty-four hours', but he will have to settle for 'within twenty-four hours after first realizing I had been challenged'.

In Defense of King Sombra · 7:28pm May 30th, 2013

This is where I try to defend the character King Sombra against all the people who say he was a useless waste of a villain. Also, the only time I will mention the name “Sauron” will be in this sentence. I understand how some people can compare the two, but it's kind of a cop-out to have your entire case based on a character from a different work, so I won't even go there.

What now · 2:36pm Jun 25th, 2012

OK, so I haven't written anything in a while. I was in a depressive funk there for a time, and couldn't bring myself to write anything. You most likely have had a period of time when something similar has happened to you too, so you know how things can get. So, now that I want to write again, I am just kind of sitting here thinking, "what should it be?"

Crappy jokes. · 11:03pm Apr 2nd, 2012

Yes, it's true, just as everyone already knew (all four of you who read my blog page). I didn't hurt or cripple anyone yesterday, and I'm not going to be spending time in prison. That post was my online April Fool's Day joke. Ta-dah!

Bad Trouble · 2:34am Apr 2nd, 2012

I think I may have screwed up pretty bad. This is just a heads up to my watchers (all half dozen of you) that I may not be here for a while. I may very well be sitting in prison. You know how it's April 1st today, and we're supposed to play harmless little pranks on others in a fun little mischievous way? Well, mine backfired ... kind of a lot. I ended up hurting someone really badly, and he may not be able to walk for the rest of his life. We will know when he wakes up. His family is

Trying again. · 3:44am Mar 23rd, 2012

OK, let's try something different, something where I don't try so hard, but still take it seriously. Maybe that is the key: to put effort into a story by ... not putting effort into it? I don't know. I just hope people like it enough to not call me bad names for writing it.
